I have an interesting idea...

combine the decode and the get_parents, such that only an encoded slash
would have the text value "//" and only an encoded backslash would have
the value "\\"  It would then be up to the proxy to forward the original
URI value or up to the file system to reject such constructs.

It needs fleshing out, but these are canonically unique values after the
string has had get_parents applied.  Thoughts?
